After a tearful good bye to enchanting Nicaragua, we headed back south to Costa Rica. For our boarder crossing, we decided to "splurge" and take TicaBus - an air-conditioned bus, no chicken bus for sketchy and confusing boarder crossing.
We rented a car for 4 days as we nomadic ally moved south down the Nicoya Peninsula. We actually …
... it before you go, the extent of the drop was completely unexpected and then the bungee ropes catch your fall just as your tummy about reaches your chest and it swings you so high and fast that you really do feel like the jungle man himself. Such a thrill!!!
I went before Sal, and all she could hear were my screams of excitement as I flew through the air and then swung back and forth a couple of times. Then it was Sal’s turn and I ...

Being a passenger is cool because I get to point out lots of birds and wildlife along the way. We saw a line of huge lizards sunbathing on old trees trunks lining the road. We also saw some kind of wild dog. I thought it was a wolf at first and Del thought it was a big fox when we actually saw that we we driving ...

How has this hotel rated in the past?
After searching all over Samara for "affordable" (read: under $100 for 4 people), we were happy to find Mirador de Samara. I admit to being a bit skeptical by the "no need for a/c, as we get nice winds up high here". However, the truth had been spoken. We had 2 very comfortable nights with no a/c in our VERY spacious one bedroom condo with a SWEET view of all of Samara. Pool was clean, condo was bug free, water was hot, room fit the budget. Happy campers
